to the united states. senior u.s. officials tell cnn that one of gadhafi's closest confidants has been calling the state department every day. we also heard this talk by secretary of state hillary clinton yesterday. though u.s. officials say the intention behind these calls is murky. could be a sign the gadhafi regime is exploring options, looking for a way out or disinformation put forth to make gadhafi not trust the people around him. today secretary of state hillary clinton said gadhafi and his inner circle have some choices to make. >> it will be up to gadhafi and his insiders to determine what their next steps are, but we would certainly encourage that they would make the right decision. and not only institute a cease fire but withdrawal from the cities and the military actions and prepare for a transition that does not include colonel gadhafi. the quickest way for him to end this is to serve the libya people by leaving. >> gadhafi shows no sign he is ready to back down. he and his government insist the air strikes are killing and injuring civilians but they have presented no evidence. th
information about gadhafi's inner circle reaching out to the united states. senior u.s. officials tell cnn that one of kathd's closest can fi dants, a brother-in-law, has been calling the state department almost every day. arab allies say they're also getting calls. we heard this talk yesterday from secretary of state clinton. though u.s. officials say the intention behind these calls is murky, it could be a sign that gadhafi's regime is looking for a way out. it could also be disinformation being put forward by the u.s. and others to make gadhafi not trust the people around him. in an interview, president obama said that gadhafi could wait it out, even though his forces have been weakened. today, secretary of state clinton said gadhafi and his inner circle have some choices to make. >> it will be up to gadhafi and his insiders to determine what their next steps are. but we would certainly encourage that they would make the right decision. not only institute a real comprehensive cease-fire, but withdraw from the cities and the military actions and prepare for a transition that does not inc
to our correspondent with the opposition right now. president obama tried to explain why the u.s. intervened military as gadhafi was closing in on benghazi a little more than a week ago. >> at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale. we had a unique ability to stop that violence. an international mandate for action. a broad coalition preached to join us. the support of arab countries, and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. we also had the ability to stop gadhafi's forces in their tracks without putting american troops on the ground. to brush aside america's responsibility as a leader and more profoundly our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances, would have been a betrayal of who we are. >> a lot more on what the president said in a moment. we'll also look tonight in an incredibly disturbing incident that looked at a tripoli hotel full of journalists. this woman was dragged away by gadhafi officials, we have updates about what's happened since. i'll talk to nick robert son about it. the
questions out there about the mission in libya, what's the goal of the u.s.? what's the exit strategy? how will the u.s. military be involved? are these all questions he sufficiently answered? >> i think did he. if he's getting criticized that heavily from left and right, he's striking a balance. he made clear that we went in to avoid what he described as violence on a horrific scale in benghazi, that again the mandate of the u.n. coalition that nato is now leading is to protect libyan civilians, i think that makes very clear what success looks like there, it means that libyan civilians are safe, safe in their houses, safe in their cities. at the same time, he made very clear that it is u.s. policy, and the policy of many of our allies. that libya needs to have a new government that responds to the demands of the libyan people. and we will pursue every diplomatic and economic means to that end and leveling the play be field militarily will certainly help. >> if he removes his forces from around misrata, pulls back troops to tripoli, and has all these armed civilians in serte and other plac
. is there a contradiction in what this mission is? because we've heard from u.s. officials gadhafi has lost legitimacy, they want him out, but the security council resolution talks about protecting civilians. what's the mission? >> if you talk to u.s. officials, they say the mission immediately is to stop the violence against the civilians. but then they also talk about a series of kind of stages that, in in other words, sequencing is the word they're using, one step at a time. they say okay, we're going to try to freeze his advance, especially to benghazi, and continue to tighten the noose in other ways. so they're freely admitting it make take some time to get him to step down, if he each does. i just got some new information from a senior u.s. official. we're here at the airport about to take off with hillary clinton to paris to that meeting on libya. he said that the libyans were still reaching out to the united states. in fact, the foreign minister musa kusa has been calling officials in the united states and they continue to say we're going to have a cease-fire, we're going to have a cease-fire.
on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft
six reactors have been reconnected. also, the fallout, the u.s. fda slapping a ban on importing produce and dairy products from any of the four prefectures nearest the reactors. and workers at the crippled nuclear plant are speaking out. >>> late new reports of coalition air strikes in the overnight hours near misurata. we're just getting this information in. details in a moment. also, secretary of state hillary clinton, moammar gadhafi, both speaking out tonight. what he's saying marches to the beat of a drummer only he seems to hear. what she's saying, if true, is a potential game changer. here she is on abc news. >> are you indicating somebody close to him reaching out saying how does he get out? >> this is what we hear from so many sources. >> today? >> today, yesterday, the day before. some of it i'll be very -- this is my personal opinion, some of it is theater. a lot is just the way he behaves is somewhat unpredictable. but some of it is exploring, what are my options? where could i do? and we would encourage that. >> in tripoli, a surprise speech from gadhafi aired just
stalemate, which is very bad for the libyan people who continue to suffer, it's very bad for the u.s. and the rest of the coalition maintaining this no-fly zone. i can't see anything good about a projected stalemate. it's true, we don't know what the opposition would be like when they take over, but there are actually some promising signs. but the important thing is we should be in there, we should be working with them. i don't know why what we do with them should be covert at all. frankly, there's a lot we ought to do that's not lethal, starting with just the fact of recognizing this is a war of momentum. right after the strikes began, the momentum shifted back to the opposition. it looks dangerously as though it's tilting the other way now. the u.s. would have joined qatar and france and other countries would have come along and recognizing this provisional government, i think it would send a powerful message to gadhafi that the end is coming. >> bob, from what we understand, there are cia officers on the ground trying to understand, i guess, make contacts with the opposition, figu
argument against arming the opposition forces is the u.s. isn't really sure who they're arming, there may be anti-american elements among them, that president obama acknowledged. i just want to show our viewers of what some of president obama and secretary of state clinton said earlier today. >> first of all, i think it's important to note that the people that we've met with have been fully vetted. so we have a clear sense of who they are. so far they're saying the right things and most of them are professionals, lawyers, doctors, people who appear to be credible. >> we do not have any specific information about specific individuals from any organization who are part of this. but of course, we're still getting to know those who are leading the trends -- the transitional national council and that will be a process that continues. >> seems to be slightly contradictory statements from the president and the secretary of state. that is part of the problem in terms of who do you arm and where do those arms potentially end up. >> it certainly is part of the problem. you know, you never really kn
